The NAIL-ing List: Neil Alexander's News & Happenings from the world of NAIL

Welcome to the April 2017 issue of 

The NAILing List
Neil Alexander's Performances, Workshops and other bits...

Spring! Spring! Spring!  April is here - although still rainy (good thing!) and cool, warm weather will soon be upon us. Flowers are popping their heads up and so are the gigs!  Once again I am truly grateful for so many great opportunities.... 

This month the Woodstock based jamband trio Cloudburst hits 3 times - and every time we play it gets better and better. Plus I have my first solo gig in Europe; there's Mr Gone, the Thunderhead Organ Trio and more. Here's what's up in April!

(Solo Performance)

Cascais Jazz Club 

Largo Cidade de Vitória Nº36
Cascais, Portugal

Suggested Donation: 8 Euro

VERY excited to announce my first Performance in Europe (since the Machine tour in 2004), and my first Solo performance in 2 years. After spending some time in Portugal in the late 80's, I had promised myself I'd go back. The opportunity finally presented itself with a solo show at the beautiful Cascais Jazz Club in Cascais, about 15 minutes outside Lisbon. I'll be playing material from "Darn That Dream: Solo Piano Vol. 1" with some new material and adding electronics on the 3rd set. There is a suggested donation of 8 Euros. Check their Facebook Page for more info.

Our 3rd Thursday Thing continues. Nadav Z, Joe G and I will be blasting off around 8 pm for our usual tour around the outer reaches of the solar system. We've got even more new tunes this week. Plus Neil will be celebrating his birthday by playing extra loud and fast. Come out and partake of the fine food & drink at the Wherehouse while having your mind blown by the sounds. :)
